We shape, impact, and advance good public policy.
We believe that by engaging and educating, we can work with state leaders to drive changes to our health system that improve health equity. We are a trusted source of information and expertise with a deep understanding of policy and strategy. We provide policy leadership with a systems perspective and advocate for increased access to care and affordable and sustainable solutions. We serve as a bridge between policy and the community and are committed to supporting influencers as they face complex issues and tough decisions.
We engage with diverse partners and affected populations across the state, working in collaboration with health care providers, policy decision makers, industry experts, advocates, and others, so we have our fingers on the pulse of Colorado’s health scene. Our legislative efforts have secured a number of major policy victories, and our leadership has allowed us to strategically amplify the voices of Coloradans, especially those who have been historically left out.
We prioritize policy issues that impact Coloradans who have been historically left out.

The Connect to Coverage, Connect to Care Campaign concluded in March 2014 having worked to ensure that the state would be able to fulfill the promise of coverage and care for newly Medicaid-eligible Coloradans. It focused on three ambitious goals:
- Working systems
- Concerted community outreach and enrollment efforts
- Ready and accepting care providers
We research and analyze important policy issues.
Moving forward important legislative and regulatory change requires thoughtful analysis. CCMU takes the time to interview stakeholders, research the issues, and when appropriate, recommend solutions.
